Wayfarer 16, 1971 Mark 1, sail number 2790

    If you're looking for a great small sailboat, this is the one. Wayfarers are perfect for family daysailing, racing, or cruising. These sturdy, stable, fun to sail boats have ventured across the North Sea and the Baltic.

    This is your chance to own a "found in the barn" Wayfarer that has seen very little use over the last three decades. I bought it from the second owner, who was given the boat in 1978 and sailed it approximately 2 dozen times between then and 1992. The boat sat in a shed from 1992 to 2009. I bought it last year, used it a handful of times, and now must sell due to the imminent arrival of a new baby.

    The boat is in ready to sail condition:

    Hull: fiberglass hull in very good condition, with only a few scratches and nicks. Hull is white with light blue deck. Includes 2 stainless steel Elvstrom bailers. Seats in excellent condition. Floorboards need to be repainted.

    Rigging: gold Proctor mast and boom in excellent condition; all other standing rigging in very good to excellent condition as well. Halyards and sheets could use replacing, but are serviceable as is. Includes whisker pole. Sails: comes with main and jib, which I believe are original. Both are in good condition.

    Trailer: rusty but works fine. I towed it home 570 miles last year, and it did just fine. I just installed a new winch cable.

    Centerboard, rudder, and tiller: could benefit from a new coat of varnish, but are in good condition. Comes with tiller extension.

    Engine: Sears Gamefisher 3 hp 2-stroke outboard. Starts and runs fine.

    Asking price: $2,500 for the package, or $2,200 without the motor. Motivated seller, so make me an offer!

    Additional info and photos available on request.
